12:02 pm
a cron let's all remember how last summer they kind of sealed the deal when donald trump took a trip to paris the city of love and the two really established a longstanding friendship between the two leaders let's take a listen. to the friendship between our two nations. and ourselves i might it is unbreakable nothing will ever separate toes. now one thing that has brought trump and the crown together recently is a war crime was supportive and cooperated with donald trump's recent decision to conduct air strikes against the syrian government now recently we've heard in a cron talking about how the united states and france are guarantors of what he calls a multilateral world order against a range of security threats this isn't
12:03 pm
a cron talking about the relationship between france and the usa in geopolitics. it is together that we can resist the rise of aggressive nationalisms the deny our history and divide the wote it is together that we will build a new strong truism that defends poor islam and democracy in the face of it wins. the phone movie now there's one issue they clearly don't see eye to eye on and that's the iran nuclear deal the result of the p five plus one negotiations donald trump says that it's a bad deal he's totally opposed to it mccrossin says that there really isn't a good plan b. and that the deal should remain intact this is this is a strong point of disagreement between the two leaders let's take a listen. but people know my views on the around it was a terrible deal should have never ever been made we could have made a good deal or
12:04 pm
a reasonable deal if the original was a terrible deal we have to take it as a part of the broader picture which is security in the oval room it's insane it's ridiculous it should have never been made but we will be talking of what we want to do it contains iranian prison since the original and you it's part of this book rather pick your not going to be restarting anything they restarted to get a big problems bigger than they've ever had before and you could mark it down they restart their nuclear program they will have bigger problems than they have ever had before. now we recently heard both leaders speaking at the white house it was a rather friendly engagement with the press we did hear talking and focusing his comments on trade relations between the united states and the european union so we're waiting to see what comes next questions remain about the iran nuclear deal
12:05 pm
and how exactly what exactly is going to come next. and show the two presidents to go to news conference at some point in the coming across the half an hour and in new york thanks for the. next humanitarian organizations are demanding answers over an alleged saudi led coalition air strike on a wedding party in yemen bombing killed at least twenty people and injured dozens more some reports suggest that as many as fifty people may have died now please be warned that the video we're about to show you does contain distressing images and shows a small seven year old boy seen clinging to his father's body the family said to have traveled from another part of the country to attend the celebrations the man's body was reportedly the last to be taken away following the strike because the boy wouldn't let go of and many of the victims were women and children.
12:06 pm
i was the bridegroom our friends gathered in our place and were hit by an airstrike many instant people were killed and injured. this is my nephew who was injured last night by the airstrike he's two brothers who were killed. we contacted a number of humanitarian organizations for their response human rights watch said the coalition continues to target civilians and refuses to adequately investigate or compensate victims we also heard from oxfam which condemned the attack and also cold for an investigation. meanwhile riyadh says that it's taking the reports very seriously and will fully investigate as it has done in the past with similar incidents the saudi led coalition of course intervened in yemen almost three years
12:07 pm
ago to fight healthy rebels riyadh considers them terrorists who oppose the yemeni government the u.n. has described the conflict as the worst humanitarian crisis in modern history i was joined earlier by the former head of the red cross in yemen has just completed his assignment there he described to me just how much more needs to be done. why didn't the family in and there is a problem with a structural collapse of the system you have problems of water you have problems of sanitation we in the international red cross we try to fix those problems otherwise there would maybe not be any running water and so on anymore so there is no that what is coming into the country at the moment is not enough and more should be done humanitarian aid is to some extent allowed in but the problem is that more is needed to ensure a decent level of life for the population otherwise the country goes downhill as the problem is is one of a structural decay. yemen is not
12:08 pm
a country like you can find another come. with a little infrastructure in yemen you have a lot of infrastructure and this particular infrastructure is falling to pieces and we international organization including the i.c.r.c. we try to do what we can to support these structures but of course we can only do so much so i do agree with you that bringing back the country. back on its feet will be a long long lasting tones and sounds like it's a technical problem that needs dealing with that aid is somehow just a front line is to do with water and food but it's not it's a there are few doctors the ones who are there are being paid the very structures of what the country needs in order to keep rolling and keep facilitating just are very of the moment it's not only one of the most serious crisis that i've seen it's also as you point out one of the most. complicate it i have seen and i am afraid that this is becoming a feature of some of the conflicts you know some of the conflict where i work at the begin of my career were very poor country there were poor before the war poor
12:09 pm
during the war unfortunately poor after the war very little infrastructure so in a way very little too to reconstruct and the problem was reluctantly should i say it's simple to deal with here you have something which is extremely complex you have infrastructures which are falling to pieces up to the point of the whole system we have commissioned a study from well known british school that is going to carry out a full study of the health system in yemen two to know where we are today in yemen you are very serious crisis there is a food crisis there is also a crisis that has led to one million suspected community cases of cholera last year in a matter of six months it was like bushfire in twenty two years in the i.c.r.c. had never seen something like that and feel like an almost impossible task though because you broke almost a year ago quite passionately about your experience in tyee is the difficulty of
12:10 pm
getting into certain places just what kind of uphill struggle is there for aid workers once they get again unfortunately we had a tragedy three days ago where one of the staff of the yemen delegation was killed in today's and and today i cannot help but think about him his family and and wife and this you know x. is a stark reminder that working in human remains extremely difficult we do it in the extremely difficult circumstances in because of the extremely. tense hard fighting taking place doing this work documenting the cases is something that takes a toll and sometimes takes a toll on the lives of our colleagues. the problem of anti-semitism in europe is becoming more widespread with leaders expressing grave concerns over writing attacks against jewish communities the german chancellor is partly laying the blame on an influx of arab migrants. noire we have
12:11 pm
a new phenomenon as we have many refuges among whom there are for example people of arab origin who bring in the other form of anti-semitism into the country unfortunately and to syria does existed before that despite chancellor merkel's concerns germany still opening its doors to ten thousand more migrants from north africa and the middle east the leader of one european anti semitism group says more needs to be done to tackle the problem saw i hope that works on get america it will be followed by deeds by. listen not on you you know as a return to comment on the recent event it's not an issue for jews actually it's an issue for europe jews are the first target but when jews will fall the other will follow more and more people will think that. they will be able to cure the plague which is islamist with which is the far right they should keep in mind
12:12 pm
you dale's boss jewish communities are facing similar problems in neighboring france as well where the records for part of the islamic holy book the qur'an to be rendered outdated and obsolete specifically passages that mention that the murder and punishment of jews and french politicians and prominent figures are pushing for attitudes to change as part of a manifesto against anti semitism they've signed a petition to mounting a quote quiet ethnic purging that's being driven by rising islamist radicalism among the signatories former french president nicolas sarkozy and his wife carla bruni gerard jaffa dear and former prime minister vols we demand to fight against this democratic failure that is anti semitism becomes a national cause before it's too late. france has the largest jewish community in europe with more than half a million people analysis suggests there's a twenty six percent increase in violent incidents against them since twenty seventeen and in many cases it's forcing people to leave france with anti semitism reportedly at its worst in immigrant neighborhoods again he's the president of the
12:13 pm
belgian league against anti semitism he believes that we're seeing a worrying trend but is very new in this article is that they go to the core of the problem speaking about some. verses some sort in the koran and calling for a to gain jews again christian against the nonbelievers in the day. to change this to make it actually to make it up so late that could be part of the solution it's not a fight between the muslims and the most teams it's a fight between the openness between total runs on one side and on the other side you have darkness you were in total runs you have eight the u.s. is stepping up its ambitions in space but doesn't want to share the final frontier that's mine i had line you still to come after the break.
12:14 pm
put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want to. let you go right to the pros this is what the three of them will be good. i'm interested always in the washington. area. so seems wrong why don't we all just don't all. get to shape out just the. ticket and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
12:15 pm
welcome back moscow says that it's not satisfied with the u.k.'s responses to its questions about the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in the south of england last month and in an attempt to cut through all the confusion to notorious russian pranksters have put some questions of their own to the head of the international chemical weapons watch dog the o.p.c. w. ecologic to ask experts it can be produced in any state so that. this cannot be excluded. however. also the rush of the claim that there were some research activities on such such as where which may be true but the states which may have contracted such
12:16 pm
activities would have done it for protective defensive purposes harder to. detect it to. defend or i should say harder to create develop some dots against the use of such that's the sis and so on the call with the o p c w chief in which one of the hoaxes pretends to be the polish prime minister lasted for more than twenty minutes we've contacted the want to talk about the discussion the o.p.c. w. admits that it took place but noted that it's directed nothing in its director general said contradicts previous o p c w statements the prankster also raised some issues during the call as well including the alleged chemical attack in the syrian city of doom earlier this month. they seem to be willing to support the team deployment date also did it in writing. and
12:17 pm
we hope that it straight will will evolve and will allow us. to complete its work safely the safety of our staff of course is of private a concern mr prime minister we cannot take really. too high risks inspectors call from the a p c w are currently in syria investigating the alleged chemical attack in duma. thanks the man suspected of deliberately planning a van into the destiny in the canadian city of toronto on monday has been charged with ten counts of first degree murder. there was a man lying in the road hit by a car his shoes were one hundred feet away up the road. he started going down the
12:18 pm
sidewalk and knocking people down one by one. they have passed multiple dead bodies carried out she was endeavoring the road. he just destroyed so many people's lives every single thing that got in his way twenty five year old man i see you know was arrested following a standoff with the word enforcement it was all previously known to police the motive is not yet clear here's how other witnesses described the events. the man was walking through the intersection and young encountered it was just one of the middle of the intersection and the van just went right into one plowed right into him and then apparently he drove down further and he went on to the sidewalk by the next building and he hit more people there and just kept on. the scene of i seen a white van with film with red coloring on it and i always saw was that he smashed into someone over there he just went on the sidewalk he just started shooting everybody man he hit every single person on the sidewalk anybody in israel you would hit the bus stop everything was shattered there was
12:19 pm
a lady in there i saw i just stopped and i looked the night went after it again and i see this crumbling up one by one and one by one dragged on and there blood is all over young empress is really bad. haha and i'm so shaky i'm still dying from this i can't believe this is happening this is like unbelievable this is on the level. i just see and i saw the u.s. and i want to just go to find something wrong so many people just. stopped the car not. just to keep moving and some people and straight people live down here and even in. the u.s. appears to be preparing for the threat of space warfare and scrambling to secure off world dominance thank you aaron as the details. military defense hollywood style the united states air force has opened its high ground of space for day to other nations other air forces who dream of making such
12:20 pm
a claim but what if their dream became a reality never expects something trust to turn against you. with. millions knew the facts change your boards infrastructure. so. you're rich will compete and will win. the u.s. has unveiled its latest in space with a plan to step up security on its satellites not just its own those of its allies to the concern is that potential adverse stories may be capable of hacking or disabling the satellites they were watching hardware as we know is crucial to communication navigation and intelligence gathering all things that would be crucial in the absence of war and its hope that by sharing this information with its allies that would deter any potential attacks but is just the tip of the
12:21 pm
iceberg because space warfare is the big defense trend right now which the new black don't take my word for it ask the u.s. top brass of the air force i cannot think of a military mission that there's not depend on space russia and china are developing capabilities to disable our satellites as the u.s. things ahead with its space odyssey it's pouring in billions and roping in the likes of space x. is a long muskrats proven he can not only deliver but he brings the goods fast but will the channeling of satellites is one thing the question now is how long will it be before we see actual physical attacks in space well some think it's just a matter of time before american forces find themselves fighting from space we're going to say whether this is the case or not one thing's for sure the u.s. is deterred. and to remain a leader in this field the curator of warfare has changed we invasion a constellation of nana satellites always the predator never the pre and one person
12:22 pm
unable to contain his excitement is the us president space is a war fighting domain name just like the land air and sea we may even have a space force develop another one space force the air force one of the space schools we have the army the navy now you might think there's no no war regulation on taking things a step too far in space but in fact there is almost a decade ago one hundred seventy eight countries voted on a u.n. resolution to prevent a space arms race only two countries abstained the u.s. and israel washington also blocked a joint russian chinese effort to ban all weapons in space so perhaps an inkling that the u.s. has long been planning on staking its claim to the stars we talked to physicist and arms control researcher dr mark abroad and he thinks that the space threat is being
12:23 pm
exaggerated. as to the specific stair the specific threats i think much of this is exaggerated actually. the notion that some other country is going to attack the united states sort of sitting in a scenario of attacks on civilian infrastructure via space i think is quite overblown are mostly some people in congress almost entirely republican and these are the people who have been pushing this idea i don't think the military really wants if it leads to an expanded budget could lead to more money for the contractors and that could very well be some of the motivation for people in congress to be pushing this idea i think it's high time that americans woke up to that and realize that we need a different policy we need a policy that would seek to avoid war in space too who i rep is ation is based on our policy didn't gauges proposals for arms control in space. it's just over fifty days before the fifth will come here and russia star studded team is

12:27 pm
trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of the global wealth he longs to the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred trade per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only number you need to remember is one to one business show you can't afford to miss the one and only boom bust. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race based on often sparing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical of time time
